Theoretically, it's an easy mountain trip but be careful. First of all: if the weather is bad, entering Giewont can be very dangerous. Secondly, there are so many tourists in July and August that you should consider another trip. It's crowded there. If the weather...More

It's a demanding hike (if you're not already a mountain-climber) up to the top of Giewont, 1895 MSL, Tatramountains, South Poland, but so worth it! Part of the strech is very steep with only a chain to hold on to, many parts are very rocky...More

Although I've been to the Tatra Mountains many times, during my last visit I climbed Giewont for the first time. Perhaps it's because I visit mountains to find tranquility and I often look for places that are not popular. Giewont is extremely popular and in...More

We loved it. Breathtaking views! Make sure you have your walking shoes. Best to leave very early in the morning, queues to the top are quite long otherwise. There are two ways of getting there. From Kuźnice or from Dolina Strążyska. If your knees are...More
